1 – Flower pots

One way to reuse these bottles to give a decorative use is using them to design a beautiful flower pots where you can place your plants and flowers preferred. You can make pendants, cutting the bottle in half and leaving the cap portion down (as in the main photo), or using the bottom of the bottle, also cut, as a vase or pot, being able to decorate the outside just as you like: painted, with washitape, with vinyl, leaving transparent with land in sight …

2 – Candle holder with plastic bottles

To make a candle holder with the base of the bottle you need scissors, black tape, the candle and the bottle, of course. First cut the base with low height and stick the tape around the diameter remaining. If you do not like black you can use a tape of another color. How easy! You can also make candelabra with the top. For this cuts the cap portion of two bottles and glue for that place. When dry you can decorate as you like. Even if the bottle has a color it will not need to add anything more.

3 – How to make a bean bag with plastic bottles

Now let’s make a slightly larger piece of furniture, particularly a puff. The materials you’ll need, as we explained are:

  • 32 bottles of the same size
  • A roll of tape
  • Pieces of cloth and sponge
  • Needle and thread

First you have to cut the bottles a little below the cap and join with each other, so they are like having two bases; attach them with adhesive tape. Then you put them together in a circle or large square and paste all bottles assembled with adhesive tape above and below. In part that serves as a seat you can put a pillow or cushion to be more comfortable, and you can already cover your bean bag with fabric that you like.
